Soap Fiend

BY Intern Sheila J in DIY

Bagels are way too scrumptious for their own good, but this one's to get fresh and clean, not for eating.

During the back-end process, I came across many-a-crafter.  BUT I must say, one of the crafters I am most excited about is Lillian Crowe (table 127).  Her beautiful, brass bone and gut necklaces are my dream come true.  Not to get too deep on ya, but I am a published poet.
